Paul Gallant’s ‘Chill Dawg’ Tweet Thrown Back At Him During Seattle Riots

“After seeing the effects of riots to the building where his home is located, Gallant tweeted that he feels like he might “need to buy a firearm.”

“Enough is enough” ESPN Seattle’s Paul Gallant tweeted Saturday afternoon. Five weeks after the morning radio host told Donald Trump to “Chill Dawg,” in reference to the president’s claim of cities being burned and pillaged, Gallant was directly impacted by nearby rioting. 

Gallant returned to his apartment complex over the weekend, where the ground level Starbucks was destroyed. After seeing the effects of riots to the building where his home is located, Gallant tweeted that he feels like he might “need to buy a firearm.” 

“The terrorists burn and pillage our cities, and they think it is just wonderful, even the death,” Trump tweeted June 12. “Must end this Seattle takeover now!” the president added. 

Gallant replied, informing the president he walked through the city at night and “saw no burning, pillaging, or deaths.” Five weeks later, not only did the radio host witness burning and pillaging, but his apartment building was on its receiving end. 

Shortly after ESPN Seattle’s Danny and Gallant co-host shared the news that he was being evacuated from his apartment building because of damage stemming from riots, Twitter rehashed his “Chill Dawg” response to President Trump from mid-June. 

But Gallant didn’t cave. “I stand by what I originally said,” Gallant responded on Twitter. “5 weeks ago, Chaz/Chop/whatever didn’t seem as bad as portrayed by those outside of it. I’d walked through it a few times. Then burning & pillaging actually happened. Classic.”

 “Opinions should be able to adapt and evolve,” Gallant later tweeted, continuing his measured response to social media’s claims of hypocrisy.

  1. Should opinions be allowed to adapt and evolve? Hmm welcome to the Republican party and the opposition to cancel culture.

  2. Dear Mr.Gallant, were I you I wouldn’t buy a firearm unless
    A. You know how to use one without shooting yourself in the foot
    B. Unless you INTEND to use it for defense.

    1. Paul, you’re a clown! Pie in the sky until it hits close to home. Maybe spend time on war torn countries and be grateful we have rules and laws in this country to prevent what your do nervous about. And oh yeah, buying a firearm doesn’t automatically protect you, you’ll still be the same scared clueless guy with a cat and a firearm

  3. Apparently, one need not be too observant, or too bright (i.e. a liberal) to be a Morning ESPN Radio Host. The problem with living in a building with a Starbucks on the first floor, you get your hign on caffine, while being ideologically pumped up, simultaneously – blocking any cognitive processes for the day!

    Paul, if you buy a gun, please be very careful, point the end with the hole in it (called the barrel – ask the man at the gun store which end that is) away from you, so you don’t shoot yourself.

  4. Yeah, “chill dawg” as long as it is someone else’s business or home being burned or looted. Weren’t concerned until it happened to you right?

  5. Ohhhhh not chilling now are we dawg?!!? Guess you got your eyes opened. Better late than never I guess……oh…. and LoL.
